Eat.Drink.Ride with Allan Karl

“There are no strangers. Only friends you haven’t met.”

This is Allan Karl’s philosophy, and he truly walks the walk. I should know. I first met Allan when I started traveling to the United States, introducing Portugal to American motorcycle aficionados. We became fast friends, and through the years, have shared our great passion for motorcycles, yes, but also for culture, connection, food, wine and the spirit of adventure.

But Allan is so much more than a good friend. He is a star of the motorcycle world. He spent three years riding solo around the world – 62,000 miles of riding, through 35 countries on five continents. Amazing. And when he returned, he shared the lessons of his journey in his book “Forks: A Quest for Culture, Cuisine and Connections. Three Years. Five Continents. One Motorcycle”.

That’s why I am so excited to announce that Allan will be joining me for a once-in-a-lifetime ride and tour of Portugal!

The tour is open to 10 other riders. Allan will ride Doc, the same bike he road around the world for a weeklong adventure in northern Portugal. This is no ordinary tour – it’s about the ride, the culture, the cuisine – and most importantly, the people – of Portugal. We will truly explore Portugal well off the beaten track.

And we want you to join us!

You need to show up with your riding gear, helmet, and anything you want to pack on the bike. Everything else is provided: bike, insurance, fuel, food, wine, accommodations, and plenty of fun.

Nelson_Carvalheiro_Douro_Valley (29)The Northern Portugal Motorcycle Tour will take us through Portugal’s grandest historical cities like Lisbon and Porto, but also the grand vistas of the Douro River valley, and to remote and often forgotten villages of the far north near the border of Spain.

    Hi Miguel,

    Compliments of the Season!

    Simply liked your Motorcycle Tours in and around Portugal and was taken up by the charm of your Country,
    being a biking enthusiast, always keep browsing for good bike related tours and apparels gears and so on.
    Hence am here penning these lines to you.

    I do have some good friends from CMS and NAU Helmet Companies while i look into their business
    promotions across Asia and Pacific / North America. Earnestly look forward to visiting Portugal and
    from on will check your site regularly and should it be of use to my mobile no. is provided. Any time
    you do plan to visit Malaysia, do let me know.

    Look forward to sharing interesting news on the biking side. Would you be interested in expanding
    your reach out of Portugal as well. As passionate as you are but in my 60’s. Kindly connect me on
    my hand phone no. + 60 11 33 787 151 as well as emails.

    Wish you are going through a good Summer break that end.

    Thanks and Regards
